They still can make a great film!
8 December 2016 | by leroy7See all my reviews

In today's Hollywood its all about Super Heros and Action films!...Cruel Tale is such great and entertaining film...its amazing how good a film can be without a Billion dollars budget. James Habacker is great as the lead Also Joe Coleman is fantastic in this film the photography and the camera work are excellent. One of the definitive 21st century horror pictures before horror got steamrolled into oblivion... a raw blast of sensory information Strong point of the feature is that it's played for both horror and laughs.It is a Fresh film with great sound and digitally sharpened visuals Thank God for independent film....Total thumbs up must see this film. Its a breath of fresh air!
